Dirty Mary Crazy Larry: The Basement/Diner Crossover

The first half of our podcast-cliffhanger experiment is upon us!

And below you'll find a link that allows you to hear Shawn and I as we travel to New York (not really) and sit down with the one and only Jon Cross of The After Movie Diner to talk 1970s car chase movies -- in particular the 1974 Peter Fonda/Susan George romp Dirty Mary Crazy Larry.

What the hell is that you might ask? Well, Larry (Fonda) and Deke are a small time car racing duo who rob a grocery store, and plan to use the proceeds to buy an expensive race car in order to win more races and break in to the professional NASCAR circuit. Their escape with the loot does not go as smoothly as planned when Larry's one night stand, Mary (George), tags along for the ride. One step ahead of an obsessed Sheriff, they manage to evade several police cruisers, a high-performance police interceptor, and even a helicopter, in their 1969 Dodge Charger R/T.

You can listen to this bad boy by heading on over to The After Movie Diner. And don't forget, the second half of our cliffhanger -- where we discuss the 1975 epic Race with the Devil -- premieres here in The Basement on Saturday at 7 a.m. PST.

Here's a look at our feature presentation:
